2017 Gunn Turkey Feast – November 16

The annual Gunn High School Turkey Feast is upon us, and we need your help to make this event a success. Every year we feed over 1600 students, faculty and staff a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. We still need turkeys, pies and vegetarian options. Additional hands are needed for food prep and clean up. Sign up here. Ask your student about this event and they will tell you it’s one of their favorites! No time to cook? Please consider making a monetary donation to help cover the costs of mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy. Make checks payable to “Gunn High School” and write “2017 Turkey Feast” in the memo. Drop-off at the Main Office or mail them to Donna Pioppi, 3920 El Cerrito Road, Palo Alto, CA 94306 or donate online to PTSA’s Paypal address: gunnptsa@gmail.com  put “2017 Turkey Feast” in the memo field.

Experience Gunn High School for Yourself: VOLUNTEER!

Johns Hopkins University identifies “Volunteering” as one of the essential ways a parent can contribute to a student’s success at school. Gunn High School and the Gunn PTSA have many volunteer opportunities, some that bring parents on campus to serve students directly, and some working with other parents on school-related projects – all of which are designed to support students and the school. Being on campus is especially beneficial for parents so you can experience the Gunn “ecosystem” yourself!

Check out all the GUNN PTSA volunteer positions available. Key positions we are looking to fill: Parent Ed co-chairs; Co-moderators of the Spanish and Korean Parent Networks;  International Potluck co-chairs; Student Appreciation and Staff Appreciation event co-chairs; and helpers at all our big food events!
